My girlfriend and I stayed one night in Santorini and after searching online/diving deep into reviews for about an hour, we booked a room at the Agapi Villas.
Let's start with the good:
- Great location: located near Fira, we were in between Oia (the part of Santorini that everyone sees all over tumblr/is what you think of when you think of the quintessential "Greece") and the southern beaches (Perissa, Red Beach, etc.)
- Staff were very helpful! They were so sweet and the woman at the front desk hooked us up with an ATV rental within minutes of our arrival
- Working AC (very important during the summer months)
- Price was definitely on point for us, especially compared to other accommodations in Santorini
-Wifi worked great; we were able to stream the season finally of Game of Thrones with only minor lagging
Now, the "meh":
- To us, the hotel itself was misrepresented in the photos; the pool area is just okay and it overlooks a lot of construction in the hills
- Our room had a little balcony overlooking the pool area but the chairs and table were lawn garden plastic quality
- Oh and I woke up the next morning and there were ants in my bed. After looking around the room, it looked like there were tons all over the floor coming from under the balcony door. They were in my luggage :( Not that big of a deal overall, but usually I like my hotel rooms to not be covered in bugs
- The crowd at the pool during the day consisted of the type of frat boys I avoided in college
To sum it up: Great for one night as long as you're chill with ants. To be fair, the staff was so friendly / sweet that I couldn't bring myself to tell them about the ants so instead I'm leaving this review online, like the true coward I am.
My advice: if you're in Santorini for one night and you prioritize accommodations, I would splurge a little and keep looking.
